Models in Detroit. A Detroit Special to the Cincin- n.ri Commercial says there is quite a stir iu the higher circles of socK' ty there on account ol a new de parture bv the Sketching Club, uu organization composed ol young so-cit-ty ja'ople. A day or two ago uu idvertisemeut appeared in one id the local newspapers, reading: 'Wanted Models Mate and Fe male.'' There were numerous re sponses, out lew liei iig males nml about ttteuty-hvc females. The p.-rsnn selected nsthe tinest model is described as a you ig lady of rare charms, a beautiful lace aud spleu lid phyxique. She is reputed to dwell in one ot the nest quartets ot the low n, and xnll to be finely educated. The conditions upon which she consented to become a model weie that ber U.iiue should riot bedisclost d, and that she should be allowed to wear a veil at i osiugs Leading members of the cluii de- tend their action by asseiting that Iheie van be no barm in studying liom the nude us Ioiij; as long s the matter is properly conducted. The leading society paper here hints that the club has taken the step above staled, and denounces the movement us uu oltencc both to good morals jiud good art.

Near Coolidge, Kan., Mr. Ilarri son, a young Englishman, has es tablished a large estate at an ex pense of maiimhousaud dollars. A visiting correspondent recently found a charming guest ou the place iu the erson of Captain DiieiooiiH oi tue isririsii army, who, uf'er valiant services in the Afghanistan cauioaigu, is passing several years iu. travel. Captain Sherborne was wounded iu a most singular way in Afgb .tiistau. Al ter a battle be found uu Afghan Ijiugouwhe field, with both legs shot away, lie raised him in bis arms to carry him to an ambulance. But the man suddeutly wrenched himself away, and, standing erect ou his bleeding stumps, he seized one ot his owu severed legs lying beside him und struck nt Captain Sherbonie w ith furious rage, mak ing avert ible gush down bis chest w itli the jajiged bone, lie then 'dropped back dead, aud Capiatu Sherborne len laiuting by hiide. bherhorne gays it was the most A Dausuler or Mississippi.

A Massachusetts farmer suje that a few yeatsaohe li.ivl a rcun, rocky pasture, which wascoveied with lulus and bushes s. thick that there was very 'ittle gYus npon it. il cut oil' the busies and put on sheep enough lo eat every thing that grew upon it for louroi five years. They killed all the briars ii il most of the bushes. Ho sowed on some plaster ot pans and that was all he did to it, and then he said an acre ol it was worth more ami would produce more feed than three would In l'oie. If u pasture is heav ily stocked wiih sheep, nut! oil meal and cotton seed meal is fed to I Ik in to make up the deficiency ot the food great improvement will be made in the lertilil v and rrodiio tiveness of the pastures.

One chamber which wi.s exploted is said to contain the image of a man made of what had the appear anee of silver. At the hea I was a helmet of a peculiar pattern, in which were three imitation tenth ers, made ot gold or copper. From the mouth ot the strange image proce- d d a fl uuc. A theory is thii; the p'diifvtoni! race that erected it had discovered a gas je., and thai there is commuuicatioii down througn the body to Ihesjlid rock, from which the gas proceeds per iietuutly. On the walls were iiiero glypbics, which of course lie could not read. In one corner was a very large human skeleton, ut least nine feet high, ami by it it stone toma hawk and a large cross-bow, which, although it had the appearance of being erleetly sound, fell into a thousand pieces wheu ho attempt ed to lift it. A stone mortar con taining came very ticb gold speci mens was touud, and also some large pieces ot ruby silver. Mr. Ben L Fortiuberrv, as we learn trom the Summit Sentinel, some six years ago, while sheritl ot Marion county, Miss., was short in bis accounts with tbe county about 10,000, und at his trial was senten ced to tbe penitentiary for three years, but broke jail and bus beeu at large all this while, bas volun tarily surrendered himself to the authorities of Marion county. A petition is being- circulated lor his pardon, it being considered that, he bas been punished sufliciently lor the ofieiise committed. Liberty for six years, when he ought to have been in the peuiteutiary for three, will strike the average citizeti as a most desirable sort of punishment.
